Event description
Tiffany, La Farge and Their Revolutionary Opalescent Glass Windows presented by Sylvia Laudien-Meo

About this event

June 22, 4:00 pm. “Tiffany, La Farge and Their Revolutionary Opalescent Glass Windows” is the subject art historian Sylvia Laudien-Meo will present, highlighting the new craft of opaque glass panes that revolutionized the decoration of Gilded Age churches and homes. Artists Louis Comfort Tiffany and John La Farge were the lead competitors for commissions. Their works express the new interests in travel and foreign cultures, new passions for nature and landscape, an interest for symbolism, the Pre-Raphaelites and Art Nouveau, especially for complex interior decoration. Laudien-Meo: “We will look at the artists' newly developed techniques as well.”

Pierpont Morgan. Tours of the historic mansion are offered daily, as well as Tea & Talks, such exhibitions as the Bellefontaine Collection, concerts, theater and other programs.
